Once home I put the guts back in and snapped it shut again and it powered right up. All the photos on it were fine, only the plastic piece at the top shattered. It's now covered in tape and looks like the tough little camera that it is. If you're looking for a hardy 360 camera, the Ricoh Theta has survived thousands of miles on a motorcycle taking all sorts of photos and videos, and now it has hit the road at high speed, and it still keeps on ticking.
I'd kinda hoped that this nixed the Theta S so I could upgrade to the new Theta V. At this rate I'm going to have to drop this thing into the sun to kill it! #onetough360camera
